Public health scientists have found new evidence of the threats posed by our toxic environment to our cellular health. The air we breathe, the water we drink, even the foods we eat contain substances that may be damaging to our cells. Any tissue that is exposed to the environment, including the skin and the linings of the respiratory and gastrointestinal passages, is especially vulnerable.
Healthy human cells in culture Laboratory experience and analysis indicate that certain types of healthy cells in culture may survive indefinitely when “nutriented” properly and protected from harmful toxins.
Cells after adding digested products from a fatty meal
Similar cells when antioxidants are included
Cellular damage is caused by oxidized lipids from fatty food. Consider that such damage could occur throughout the body.
Antioxidants provide a marked improvement in inhibiting cellular damage from oxidizable foods. Healthier eating habits are your first line of defence.
“My father started USANA Health Sciences with a focused vision of freeing the world from pain and suffering,” Dave declares. “He envisioned a world where people experienced physical health, emotional well-being, and financial stability. He wanted to give his family and families of thousands of others the means to enjoy life to its fullest in happiness and health. To accomplish this, he enlisted the help of many Associates who shared USANA’s vision and wanted to help make the world a healthier place.”
Myron Wentz, Ph.D. (immunology and microbiology), founder and chairman of USANA Health Sciences, hypothesizes that foods with high peroxide values, especially processed, fatty foods, generate free radicals that in turn damage healthy cells. Researchers believe that supplementary antioxidants are necessary for combating these free radicals in addition to the body’s normal defence systems. “The human body is made of cells, and those cells work together to sustain your life,” Dr. Wentz says. “Taking antioxidants with food may help reduce the formation of oxidized lipids.” Other medical professionals concur on the importance of supplementation. With a family of hundreds of thousands currently supplementing their diets with USANA products, USANA Health Sciences remains committed to its focus on science. Having modeled its quality program after similar programs used in the pharmaceutical

USANA Products Named Best of the Best ®
Groundbreaking nutritional research—USANA
The USANA® Essentials™ with Patented Olivol : The Most Complete Multivitamin System on the Market TM
The USANA Essentials, which include Mega Antioxidant and MultiMineral Plus, form the basis for the entire USANA nutritional system. The Right Ingredients (Comprehensive Formula) USANA has redefined the meaning of essential nutrients to include not only those that are required to prevent acute nutrient deficiency, but also nutrients that have been linked in recent research to the maintenance of optimal health.
The Heart of the OliveTM Many dietary antioxidants, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, bioflavonoids, carotenoids, and proanthocyanidins, are present and numerous in many dietary sources. But unlike these readily available antioxidants, the phenolic antioxidants concentrated in Olivol olive extract are found only in olive fruit. Because olives provide the only dietary sources of these powerful antioxidants, the benefits of olive fruit and olive oil consumption are extensive.
F reedo m
N ews p a p er
Advanced Doses The USANA Essentials contain higher levels of almost all the essential vitamins and minerals listed in the Canadian RDI (Recommended Daily Intake), providing levels associated with more optimal health. Balanced Formula (A Synergy of Nutrients) The formulations of the USANA Essentials were painstakingly designed to allow the components to work in concert to achieve a synergy of optimal health benefits and safety. The Correct Form (Highly Bioavailable) At USANA, every effort is made to obtain the highest quality ingredients with dependable levels of potency. In addition, every step of the manufacturing process is subject to exacting quality control. All this ensures that the full benefits of these essential nutrients are available to the user.
The Heart of the Olive®
The most convenient way to get your daily dose of nutrition
The Essentials—Mega Antioxidant and MultiMineral Plus— are the only products on the market that contain Olivol, USANA’s patented olive-fruit extract.
USANA’s HealthPak™ is a nutritional supplement pack that offers a comprehensive daily supplement regimen with a full daily dose of the Essentials, bone-supporting nutrients from Active Calcium Plus™, and antioxidants in the exclusive AO Booster™ tablet. Each box contains 56 individually wrapped packets containing two Mega Antioxidant, two MultiMineral Plus, one Active Calcium Plus, and one AO Booster, providing you with optimal and balanced antioxidant activity—day and night.
Unrivaled Nutrition, Unmatched Value
Save $1,200 a month with USANA’s Essentials “As a practicing clinical pharmacist, I have a tendency to think very skeptically about the products I come across. However, when I researched USANA® products, I found that they were safe, effective, and of the highest quality. That is why I trust USANA.” Iris Lam, Richmond, British Columbia
USANA offers an individualized health assessment to analyze your biometrics, lifestyle, and health priorities, and define which USANA products are right for you. Get your personalized product recommendations at www.usanahaa.com.
The Essentials provide a broad spectrum of vital vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants—more than can easily be obtained from the average Canadian diet. Take a look at the food—about 22,000 calories worth— you’d have to eat to get the same nutrients found in a daily dose of the Essentials. Plus, it would cost you more than $44 to fill your grocery cart with the items needed to obtain these nutrients. The Essentials, meanwhile, cost just 26 cents per tablet—or $2.10 per day. That’s a difference of more than $40 per day or $1,200 a month! While USANA supplements are not a replacement for eating a balanced diet, they do provide a convenient way to supplement your diet to help ensure you get the nutrients you need to maintain optimal health.
USANA For All Generations Research clearly shows that many young adults do not get the nutrition they need, and their poor nutrition can lead to health problems such as diabetes and osteoporosis later in life. Poor nutrition during the developmental years can retard growth and delay sexual maturation, while proper nutrition helps to give young adults the foundation for good health for the rest of their lives. To provide their bodies with adequate amounts of all the essential nutrients, young adults and their parents should follow a well-balanced, proactive nutritional plan that includes highquality vitamin and mineral supplementation.
Scientists Discover Solutions to Maintain Your Health
Nutrition research is more than the study of nutrients. It also encompasses research in related areas. Dr. Wentz, in his vision to champion the science of nutrition, has gathered scientists from varying fields of expertise, most of whom have published numerous papers in their careers.
Body Rox is specifically formulated to meet the nutritional demands of young adults. It contains Olivol, rutin, quercetin, hesperidin, grape-seed extract, green-tea extract, turmeric extract, lutein, and lycopene.
Active Calcium Chewable™ Because this product is chewable, it appeals to people who might not otherwise consider supplementing their diet with calcium. Active Calcium Chewable helps in the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth.

Ani Black Victoria, British Columbia “I love sharing USANA with people from all walks of life and every cultural background. Talking to people was challenging at first until I learned to break through my own resistance and fear. When we’re confident in USANA and respectful of others as we connect with them about our opportunity, building our business can be immensely gratifying.
“I used to dream about being the mom that dropped her kids off at school and headed off to the gym for a regular workout. Now, I am that mom! My USANA business flows around my busy family schedule and has given us an income I would never have created in my previous career.”
“Everyone knows the USANA income potential is spectacular. I am committed to showing both benefits USANA provides equally: true health and financial freedom. With my success, I feel obligated to share USANA’s message to others. Most people today have the appearance of wealth, but that is not enough to retire on. Dr. Wentz has given us a solid way to deal with the two main causes of human suffering, and I am committed to sharing his vision of physical and financial health with everyone.”

Tim & Karen Shumka Delta, British Columbia Karen and Tim Shumka did not intend to wake up in their mid 30s living paycheque to paycheque and paying credit card minimums with other credit cards. Nor did they intend to have their income hinder the dreams of their children. But that was their reality in 2004. “Our 9-year-old daughter wanted a horse and we just laughed,” Karen admits. “Debt was not only limiting Tim’s and my dreams, but it was shutting down our kids’ dreams too. It wasn’t until that moment that I realized that the solution was right there in our home.” The Shumkas had been using USANA® products for five years when Karen realized that by simply recommending the products to others, she could begin making some of the extra income that their family needed. From there, her motivation, and then her income, continued to grow. “It was clear to me that by creating a strong USANA business, we could not only resolve our financial concerns, but we could lead a healthier lifestyle and have more time with those we love.” “It is amazing the freedom that USANA has given us,” Tim says. “The freedom to golf with our kids, the freedom to rarely miss a hockey game, the freedom to volunteer and shape our community—it all comes down to having more of our most valuable resource, time.” “Oh, and by the way,” Karen adds, “our daughter now owns an amazing horse.” Refer to page 15 for the Average Income Disclaimer

Making that decision has meant opening up a world of success and opportunities for Leanne. She is also able to help others create this true freedom in their own lives. “Freedom is my ultimate journey,” she says, “and there is nothing else that can offer the time, health, emotional, and financial freedom that USANA can.”
In my 30-year career of studying and counseling high-performance professionals and organizations, I have discovered specific criteria that drive the best of the best:
“When the opportunity was presented to me, I realized that the worst-case scenario would be that I would be taking the best nutritionals on the planet and supporting my health. The best-case scenario would be taking part in a business that would lead to financial independence. There really wasn’t anything else to consider!”
Denis Waitley, Ph.D., is an internationally renowned author, keynote speaker, consultant, and former chairman of psychology on the U.S. Olympic Committee’s Sports Medicine Council
“So many of us are busy being busy,” says Leanne Grechulk while reflecting on her life before starting her own USANA business. “I realized that I spent a large portion of my time and energy on things that just didn’t matter to me.” Now, after finding success with USANA, Leanne is able to spend her time and energy however she chooses.

Why a Home-Based Business Makes So Much “Cents” There are many reasons why so many people favour home-based businesses over something more traditional. There is no commute, no boss, lower overhead, few employees if any, and far fewer government restrictions. In fact, many of the laws don’t apply to small firms that have few or no employees. In addition to all the benefits mentioned above, if your home-based business produces a tax loss in the first year or so, you can use that tax loss against any other income you have. It can be used against wages earned as an employee, dividends, pensions, or interest income—or you can use the loss against your spouse’s earnings if you file a joint return. The light at the end of the tunnel, for you and millions of others today, is the financial opportunity that starting your own business offers. The tax advantage alone can make a homebased business the single best financial move you’ve ever made.

USANA & Children’s Hunger Fund: A Partnership for Change USANA’s vision of true health extends to all people, especially children, which is why it has formed a partnership with Children’s Hunger Fund (CHF). This organization has provided more than $875 million in aid and Forbes magazine named it as one of the nation’s most cost-effective charities, with more than 99 cents of every dollar going directly to children in need. To date, USANA Associates, employees, and corporate leaders have donated more than $11.1 million in products and financial support. In the eight years that USANA and CHF have worked together, thousands of children have received daily nourishment, medical care, and a renewed sense of hope, particularly through the Wentz Medical Centres in Uganda, Cambodia, and soon Malawi, by serving children affected by diseases such as malaria and HIV.
Teaming Up with TOSH for Better Health With two grants from The Deseret Foundation, USANA Health Sciences has teamed up with TOSH, The Orthopedic Specialty Hospital in Murray, Utah, to examine the effects of supplements in three different studies. In the first study, USANA will examine muscle strength and recovery following exercise with and without vitamin D in physically active individuals. For the second and third studies, USANA will identify the influence of both vitamins E and C, as well as USANA® Essentials™, on strength recovery following ACL and knee reconstructive surgery. USANA and TOSH have several more studies planned for the future.
USANA Partners with Linus Pauling Institute USANA Health Sciences and the Linus Pauling Institute (LPI) have worked together to expand Dr. Wentz’ vision by better determining the role that vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants play in promoting optimal health. For more than a decade, LPI, one of the nation’s first Centers of Excellence for Research on Complementary and Alternative Medicine, has been a world leader in the science of micronutrition. USANA hopes to continue to support research at the Linus Pauling Institute to leverage the true synergy between basic and applied research in human nutrition.
